Nope...  That, and digging through the code a bit more, there is a 
very definite path that gets followed in this part of the code, and 
there are no "out-of-memory" possibilities along that path...

But I'm completely failing to see how the "raid1: IO failed after 5 retries." 
can occur without an actual component failure...
